A perfect place to walk the dog on a Sunday morning.

A perfect place to walk the dog on a Sunday morning. Taken on the South Downs Way northeast of Alfriston, high enough to overlook the English Channel and see almost to France. When we were taking this walk I couldn't help but think of one of my favorite poems:

 

Some Keep the Sabbath Going to Church

 

Some keep the Sabbath going to Church --

I keep it, staying at Home --

With a Bobolink for a Chorister --

And an Orchard, for a Dome --

 

Some keep the Sabbath in Surplice --

I just wear my Wings --

And instead of tolling the Bell, for Church,

Our little Sexton -- sings.

 

God preaches, a noted Clergyman --

And the sermon is never long,

So instead of getting to Heaven, at least --

I'm going, all along.

 

Emily Dickinson
